A writer explores the world around them, physically, mentally and emotionally. We write down what we discover and, hopefully, share it with others.
A few weeks back I shared some robin eggs I’d discovered on this blog. When I went back for another photo about a week later I happened to arrive just as the babies were hatching.
Cute, right? Well, maybe not so much. Or maybe it’s just a matter of beauty being in the eye of the beholder. Momma robin likely thinks her babies are the bee’s knees.
This is probably the youngest robin most of you have ever seen. I know it is for me.
This next photo was taken a week later. There appears to be only two babies in the nest. To tell the truth Momma robin was highly agitated by my presence. I snapped a quick picture and vowed not to return. I would be very upset if she abandoned her babies.
I can only imagine that the babies are now out on their own, exploring the world, flying off in search of adventure.
